Do i need ot upgrade form my Vanilla 2080 RTX

I currently have a 2080 RTX vanilla, i am considering upgrading it but i cant find many options anywhere, 3070 and 3080 is all sold out for me everywhere atm, i was planning to upgrade my gfx card specifically for cyberpunk 2077 and ray tracing,
but all i can find is a 3090 which is way to expensive and i don't want to put a 3090 in my asus strix z390-h pci 3.0 mobo plus i cant afford it.

So is it worth ugrading from a 2080 rtx vanilla to a 2080 rtx super? or there will be little to no benefit at all for cyberpunk 2077? as i want the best experience i can rest of pc is solid,

worth is subjective

but to me personally, it's not a significant enough jump for me to even bother

we won't know until the game comes out, but 2080 to 2080S is like... 15% bump maybe? hardly noticeable

Things I need help with:


none atm


I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

The 2080 is still a capable card. Personally, I wouldn't bother with an upgrade until I've got the game in my hands and it turns out the performance is unacceptable and/or I have to turn down graphics options to an unacceptable level. With a little patience the other cards should become available at some point.
